Will Teachers Be Replaced with Technology?

As a result of the millions of dollars in philanthropy Bill Gates has poured into education many advances in educational technology have been made in the U.S.  Some examples of what Gaters has contributed to are as follows.  Video games are being developed by Quest Atlantis to help students become proficient in math, science, and literacy.  Sal Khan, a former hedge fund manager, began developing You Tube videos to help his younger cousin in school.  These videos received much more anticipation that Khan expected.  So much attention that Gates’ children viewed them to help them with their math.  Google and Gates then both helped Khan develop the Khan Academy.  Some teachers are using Khan’s videos as homework for students to watch while they spend class time in a tutoring like atmosphere.  Online learning is gaining popularity in India and in Florida as students retain more information with the differentiated one on one instruction a computer provides.  Studies have shown students still need adult supervision of their learning in a computer lab, so if teachers are less depended upon for instruction, their title may become intellectual coach or research assistant.  For more about this topic, follow the links:
